the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
. ♪ >> tonight want to let you know we'll bring you a special inside look at both these candidates. mitt romney revealed: family, faith, and the road to power. that's coming your way at 8:00 tonight eastern. and it will be followed by "obama revealed: the man, the president." you will get to see both candidates behind the scenes like never before tonight on cnn. >>> quite a scare for the family of florida republican senator marco rubio. while the senator was out campaigning with mitt romney, his daughter was involved in an accident involving a golf cart. she is 12 years old. she's amanda rubio. apparently she was visiting classmates had this accident happened. we're told she suffered a head injury and was airlifted to miami children's hospital's pediatric unit. >> there was an accident with a tennis cart. she was transported to the hospital. many tests were done. she's doing better, she's talking. the whole family is next to her. and we hope that everything is going to be much better tomorrow. >>> hurricane sandy and the campaigns. brian monroe, cnnpolitics.com editor, joins me for more of the
i picked that 250,000 number, different economists say different things. both campaigns, the romney campaign says it a lot. the obama campaign agrees, say they can create 12 million jobs if four years. that's three million a year. that is 250,000 jbz a month. 80,000 more than we're seeing. they both assume, by my calculations, they assume a 4% gdp growth. we're at 2%. now increasingly, surrogates from both campaigns have told me they can do it with a 3% gdp rate which is what we might actually see next year. now former congressman, you know him, vin webber says fiscal and government restraint is the key. listen to what he said. >> we're not seeing any element of that from this administration. no fiscal restraint. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit woul
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbe
of this really is a very delicate act right now on both the part of the president and mitt romney? >> you know, it's very delicate, yes, but, you know, the president has to do his job. what he is doing is doing his job, which is he is going to devastated areas which one would expect, the commander in chief to do. he is deploying resources. if he didn't show up there, people would be saying where is the president? i think, a, he has a job so do and he is doing it. it is a little more difficult, of course, for mitt romney. mitt romney doesn't have a job to do. he is not the president. that's his job. he has to walk a fine line and saying, look, we have to think of you people along the eastern seaboard, and then take a turn and take a turn to politics and campaigning as the president will do when he gets back on the campaign trail tomorrow, but in the meantime, he has to be president of the united states. you mention the president will be campaigning again and have stops in wisconsin and vegas. all very key to winning the election. you have romney in florida today in tampa just the last hour. tel
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >> sean: as both candidates head into the final stretch of the campaign there is one critical state that could hold the keys not white house for governor romney and that is the state of ohio. historically no republican candidate has won the election without taking this battleground state. the latest poll shows governor romney in a dead heat with the president both at 48% and as obama is relying mainly on the quote auto bailout for a victor arery in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. vir
, the political election coming up. >> eric: sure. it's the obvious question. a huge storm, master storm, both president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campa
the storm. and both mitt romney and president obama had already canceled campaign stops in virginia, as well. for the first time in 40 years, the des moines register has endorsed a republican for president. the newspaper's editorial board admitting it struggled with its decision, ultimately deciding on mitt romney because he, quote, offers a fresh economic vision. the registered board goes on to say, voters should give mitt romney a chance to correct the nation's fiscal course, and to implode the partisan gridlock that has shackled washington and the rest of america. >>> and early voting is under way in a lot of states, but in maryland it has been canceled, for today at least, due to the hurricane. virginia's governor said his state will do what it can to make sure that voters can get to the polls, despite sandy's impact. which may include power outages. >>> and it is a great day to be a giants fan. san francisco beat the detroit tigers last night to complete a four-game world series sweep. it's their second title in three years. pablo sand val was the series mvp. the city will honor the cha
supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for change. >> both president obama and mitt romney are still campaigning their nonstop. here is why, the latest poll shows ohio pretty close. the president had made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the econo
to be consistent ones that we see. so you see both the obama campaign and romney campaign blanketing wisconsin, for instance, with surrogates. we saw vice president biden here last week as well as senator rubio, a key surrogate for mitt romney. last night, bill clinton was here. he is here this morning. yesterday vice presidential candidate paul ryan was here. we'll also be seeing, of course, president obama here today. you know, it's really interesting. something i want to point out, charles woodson of the green bay packers will be here to rally this crowd here at the airport ahead of president obama. he is the safety for the green bay packers. if you know about football, what does the safety do? they protect against long passes against, that's right, the hail mary, something the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> i like that football metaphor. i don't usually follow them all that closely. but thank you, brianna. appreciate it. little bit of a rough morning. traffic was terrible for you. >> yes. >> plus that three person rule. >> we had to drive around brooklyn, pick up cnn
make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did they not? >> they did. liberal media puts up the liberal e polls. michele has had a target on her back from the liberal media since she first went to congress. >> gretchen: thank you for getting up early. >>. >> gretchen: our veterans ripped off on car insurance, should they be charged more because they were not covered at war? san
states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. virginia and florida just too close to call. well inside that margin of error. could go either way. but for all the talk you have heard of mitt romney's momentum since the first debate in denver, that fateful first debate, it looks like from this poll the momentum has either stopped or slowed. that, of course, is not the message that the campaign has been putting out over the past couple of days. >> you talk about sandy. there's a big picture of the day will be governor chris christie and president obama together surveying the damage. again, so many people have remarked it's a remarkable sight. i'm not quite sure if it is and seems like common sense. we know where governor christie is based and there are people in need. unlike michael bloomberg when's not planning to run for an office we know of in the immediate future. governor christ
's the absolutely crucial state that both sides have to win. can mitt romney become president realistically if he doesn't win ohio? >> either one can win without ohio. simple fact is probably the man who wins is going to win ohio. is it theoretically possible for either one of them to win without ohio, yeah. we can go through scenarios with wisconsin and colorado, pennsylvania slipping the other way. but believe me, this rally was in ohio for a very very special reason and i think president obama was here either yesterday or today. this is a crucial state. >> rudy -- >> whoever wins ohio wins the white house. >> while you've been talking, general wesley clark who was on just before you has been listening and actually wants to come back at you. so i'm going to let him have his say now. general. >> thanks, piers. i did want to come back, because i think the politicization of what's happened in benghazi deserves an answer. first of all, as the mayor well knows, after 9/11, democrats did not politicize this tragedy. not the first day, the first hour, not the first week, not the first month. but with
. >>> and after something of a hiatus for the storm, both president obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail by the end of the week. mitt romney is back on the trail today. >> let's bring back former senior adviser to president clinton and newyorker.com writer richard socarides and cnn contributor and columnist, will cain. so both candidates back on the trail this week. how do you think the storms will affect the race? and you know the early voting. >> you know, i don't know that it will have any big impact logistically, zoraida, on how the election plays out. most of the early voting states didn't have in-person early voting anyway. but i don't think it's going to have any big effect on the election. you talk about a hiatus, both of you mentioned it, john and zoraida. i think it's a little bit of a healthy hiatus. obviously we're not talking about the storm being a good thing. but to stop the constant cycle of did you hear this gaffe, and oh, my gosh on the campaign trail. step back for a moment, remember real life and ask yourself, what's really important regarding th
with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the president's -- >> no. >> no, but you muddied things up, so now people are thinking that i think that. we're talking about the extraordinary -- the extraordinary decision by michael bloomberg to tell a president to stay away. >> yes. >> that does not happen. so we are here trying to speculate -- and i don't want anybody to think that i am suggesting the president wants to use the statue of liberty as a backdrop. the question was asked, willie, it's an extraordinary gesture by the mayor of new york city to tell the president of the united states, stay the hell away. and that's what michael bloomberg's done immediately after a scathing fron
to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the rep
romney, less taxes, less spending and less government and administration actually takes responsibility for both its excesses and its failures. now, the difference is between the two men on the ballot are very dramatic. without a doubt. only one of them is a leader. let's take a look at brand-new rnc video. >> what is the essential qualities of a leader. >> the leader has an built to see where things are headed before people in genesee it. that vision is not just skill and brilliance but even more their life experience. >> we need to take back america. it's up to you guys. you can make a difference. >> now is the moment where we need to stand up and say, i make my destiny. we deserve better. my children deserve better. my family deserves better. my country deserves better. >> how we're going to restore economic freedom. >> can you win this thing? >> i'm going to win it. >> sean: it's important not to forget what four years of obama's policies have gotten us. economy is joke and we are laughed around the world. all this humor is not set sitting well you the american people. according to
of unity, both from mitt romney and the president, appealing to that sense of unity, no doubt prompted as you point out at least in part to the east coast disaster. do you expect between now and tuesday they'll remove the gloves again? >> reporter: i think the gloves will be removed, particularly because we're seeinging t inthe unprecedented impact of outside money. we already saw one flyer in virginia, associated with apparently americans for tax reform, that tried to politicize the storm. so the outside groups and the outside money, you're going to see an uptick in dirty tricks in part because it is dirty money that is flowing through the election system. the candidates may try to stay out of the fray, but the outside groups will be more than willing to take off the gloves and fight hard because this is a war of attrition now, this fight is so close that it comes down to every vote. it is a game of inches. >> with the close fight, it has been days since we have looked at polls. so in the name of getting our bearings here, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york
for mitt romney and paul ryan. >> sean: here's the thing that is rare, where they're both about the same. democrats are actually leading through a big part of that. is that not as effective as the ad which says my first time and comparing losing your virgin see to your first time voting? >> let's be honest. those ads are pathetic and they ought to be ashamed. this ad communicates to women on the issues they care about. again, there's no yelling, no screaming, no accusations. p sean, what no one has talked about is how the republican campaign is now almost 50% positive. you don't hear any positive ads for barack obama. romney's made a very smart decision here, running ads that n and what he's going to do. >> sean: so all the momentum is moving in governor romney's direction. who would have thought they had to send bill clinton to minnesota and biden to pennsylvania. they've got to shore up michigan. they're fighting for their life in michigan and wisconsin, but then ohio is very close. >> there are three things this campaign needs to do, and i think you've got graphic back there. i call i
both. >> thank you. >> let me start with you if i can, kellyanne. mitt romney a week ago was off a momentum and heading possibly to victory on tuesday. which ever way you look at this, this hasn't been a good few days for him politically. clearly the most important thing is the safety of the people involved. >> absolutely. >> and we accept that. but politically his momentum has stalled. the president has been out there being a president. >> it could be. but i'm with mayor booker and governor christie on this one, which is, it's so difficult to even a talk about politics at a time like this but you have tuesday coming up. you have early voting going on right now in the states. so the events in front of them, i think it can go either way. people will either disassociate with the current events and how they feel for the last four years or they will do what voters sometimes do in times of uncertainty. and say there's uncertainty all around me, the stock market, hurricane, terrorism. why throw the captain off the ship now when there's so much uncertainty? so many things i can't contro
down to two very important states, virginia, very important state for mitt romney. he has to win it. but more importantly, he has to win ohio. >> candy, good to see you. mark thanks very much. we will be talking to you both in the course of the next few days. the country will be hearing a lot from both of you. >>> coming up, we're going to give both sides a chance to defend their economic plans. >> four more years, four more years. four more years. >> all right. we're going to give president obama his chance first. he says he needs four more years to finish the job. that's four more years possibly with a dysfunctional congress at home and economic turmoil abroad. why will the next four years be different from the last four? that's next. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] its lightweight construction makes it nimble... ♪ its road gripping performance makes it a cadillac. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with advanced all-wheel drive.

? >> we do. gallup and pew both tell us about 19 million people have voted already in this country they say romney has 7 point edge on national basis according to gallup and pew interesting swing. obama led mccain this time four years ago by 15 points according to gallup or by 19 points according to pew. so it's been a 22 or 26 point swing in the republic's favor. >> they get this from exit polling. how do they get the data. >> try to read by party registration. x number of democrats. >> bill: they have to have that on the ballot. >> on a lot of the states not all of them. >> bill: their projection is that romney is winning by how much. >> 7%. that's on a national basis. and then when you drill down on specific wing states it differs, some polling of actual vote in nevada and iowa that shows president obama is doing better than mitt romney in those states and those are the states that going to decide the election. >> i think that's because and this is karl rove speaking now not me more democrats ordered voted early than republicans. bret baier will be anchor next tuesday. >> novemb
